Watch “The Walking Dead” and “The Day After.” The greatest threat will be “normal” citizens who will respond to the Reptilian Portion of their brain, and ethics are out the window. It will be kill or be killed. You’d better be prepared to do things; like kill women and maybe even children, if things get really bad. It’s not going to be “fun camping trip.”

Back in the day, this place was a radon health mine (look it up online). Nowadays, the cult’s hiding some of their shit in it. If I was braver, I’d raid it for supplies. If you wanna go in that creepy old place, then the power should still be working if you can find a switch or a generator inside.
Now that you have been bit by the prepping bug, your life has undoubtedly changed. Trips to the grocery store now include searching out bargains on dry goods and canned goods so that you can purchase one for now and one for later. Family outings now focus not only on having a good time, but on learning how to cope in the outdoors and making do without all of the creature comforts that come with a roof over your head.
Precious metals have been moneys since before Jesus. That deserves some respect. The other part about these precious metals is that their value increases over time. Its very important that you take into consideration that …
Exactly. I don’t know any homeowners who feel the least bit paranoid because they have homeowner’s insurance, including fire insurance. After thirty years or more of having insurance, not one has experienced a house fire, but none are embarrassed to have paid out a lot of money for coverage.

Modern Preppers have strong concerns about natural and man-made disasters as well as a major concern about the economic stability of the United States. Preppers also have a large concern about other countries attacking the United States through means such as an Electro-Magnetic Pulse (EMP) and Nuclear attacks in general are still a concern.
Recommending hatchets is usually recommended by those who have never had to use one in the field. A machette is a much more useful tool. Anything you can do with a hatchet you can do with a machette. Get a good one. Only buy Ontario brand machettes. Mine is now 40 years old. Served me in 21 years of the military. Through a tour of duty with the Peace Corps in Africa. Twenty years of work as a civil engineering technician. Still used weekly on my 5 acres of rural land. The machette has a much longer reach for use as a personal weapon. Because it is an extension of the arm the end of a moving machette has much more force to it than a hatchet. Easier to sharpen.
Prior to Y2K, Preppers were highly focused on Cold War concerns and how to survive a Nuclear War. They used the term Survivalist to describe themselves. Some of their thought leaders included Howard Ruff, Kurt Saxon, Mel Tappan, Jeff Cooper and Ragnar Benson. There was a lot of discussion of underground bunkers, food storage and water purification.

Civil emergencies and post collapse crime will mean break-ins, robberies, hostage taking, rapes and murders. Here are several DIY home security safeguards and tips to have in place before a true civil emergency.
My African Fulani tribesmen with whom I lived for a while all used machettes. No axes or hatchets. In Egypt and Edcuador where I also live and taught school the hardware stores sold machettes with very few hatchets displayed.
There are few things you need to be concerned with when selecting a camping tent. First, you’ll need to know how many people you plan on sleeping in it. Second, you’ll need to know how far you plan on packing it in so you can pick the correct weight. You’ll also need to find out whether the tent has a rain fly or not if you plan on camping during the rainy or snowy season.

Thank you SO MUCH for compiling this. I cannot tell you how stressed I have made myself as a relative “newbie” prepper. I’m someone who wanted to get it ALL done right away, which I know is impossible, but still. I’ve done bits and pieces from all 12 months (on your list/posts) at this point, based on what my biggest concerns are. Now I can step back, breathe, and carefully go through the remaining logical steps w/o making myself crazy or wasting money.
I wish I could pat all your commenters on the back too. Some of their suggestions and ideas are just incredible! I find I learn just as much from the comments on some survival blogs than I do from the actual articles sometimes….and this is no exception.
the thing about diva cup, there is a water factor. it creates more of a mess that needs water to cleanup, there is no applicator. Tampons can also be used for a variety of emergency use, not just for female use. i find them at Dollar General, a large multi pack for $3 on Clearance. they are also good for First Aid, a water filter, and other uses. Though the compost toilet is an excellent idea.

I agree with adding liquor to my stores. Whether it be for me or my family to lift our “spirits” 😉 or for bartering, I think it’s worthwhile to have. I don’t smoke but I plan on adding a carton of cigarettes to my stores as well. I figure that cigarettes would also make a very useful bartering, or even mollifying supply to have on hand.
Nice info on after EMP survival. Didn’t notice any mention of portable generators. How about putting one in your Faraday Cage with extra plugs same with chain saws. Also how well are our vehicles protected. I think if a person wanted transportation basic diesel engine vehicle is the way to go, with manual tranny. One other thing when storing water don’t put your containers on cement, use wood pallets.
“Turning and turning in the widening gyre The falcon cannot hear the falconer; Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold; Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world, The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere The ceremony of innocence is drowned; The best lack all conviction, while the worst Are full of passionate intensity.” – The Second Coming, William Yeats
I am looking to relocate with the desire for isolation. I would like a region lacking temperature extremes and with more conservative political ideology. I’m currently in Texas and wish a cooler climate but not the other end of the spectrum like Alaska. Married with 8 kids, so a place that can sustain. Fertile soil a must! Do you have any areas in mind, that I can research?
Whether evacuating from catastrophic economic Collapse or a widespread natural disaster, do you have the right supplies for your bug out bag? A few more things you need to know for bugging out … and one more “essential piece of survival gear” you probably don’t have yet, but should.
Another possibility is a major medical disaster, natural or man-made, such as a pandemic so serious that the supply lines for food and other necessities are interrupted for a meaningful time. Your hurricane supplies would go a long way towards getting you though that, though you would need a lot more than three days food.
Shotguns are renowned for stopping power. A 12 gauge shotgun has a lot of recoil, but did you know that a 20 gauge shotgun or even a teen-size shotgun can be just as effective, without the recoil? Shotguns for home defense.
If SHTF or you have a house fire or whatever, your family members may need to reach someone. Does everyone in your family have the phone numbers, full names, addresses and directions to the home and office of all your other family members and people you trust? Do you have all the police, fire and hospital numbers and addresses listed? Make a very thorough list and make sure everyone has a copy of it. This list should go into your overall emergency plan.
If you have not done so already, please be sure to like Facebook which is updated every time there is an awesome new article, news byte, or link to a free survival, prepping or homesteading book on Amazon. You can also follow Backdoor Survival on Twitter, Pinterest, and Google+ and purchase my book, The Prepper’s Guide to Food Storage from Amazon.
For these folks, doomsday prepping is a passion and necessity and not a hobby. They differ from the first group of preppers in that they truly believe we will see a SHTF event whereas the “Just Enough” folks think it’s a rarity.

Even if you’re not the official card carrier, you can still gain entry into the store. One card holder can bring 2 individuals in (again, basic only, not sure on preferred). If you’re single, shop together and bust up the quantities. Even when I was a single mom, I would shop at Sam’s with a friend. Neither one of us needed 50 rolls of toilet paper (nor did we have the storage space), but splitting it between 2 people made it more manageable – cost and storage wise.

As predicted, the violence in South Africa is ratcheting up. A police station was torched in Zwelihle and the police are struggling to maintain order. President Cyril Ramaphosa is holding firm on his drive to expropriate land from whites without compensation. It should be noted that it is not the disafected whites that are driving the violence, but the blacks who are attempting to engage in a violent land invasion. President Ramaphosa promised this wouldn’t happen, but like usual, libtards are out of touch with reality. Thanks to S.M for the links.
A survival kit is stocked with the basic necessities you’ll require to stay alive and keep your family safe while you await or prepare a more permanent living situation. While each person’s idea of “necessities” might vary, these tools are universal in nature and can prove immeasurably useful in an extreme situation where your survival depends on your preparedness and resourcefulness.
